“This was my first experience with Alexander Technique but not my last. Katie’s warm, gentle guidance & ease with establishing a safe space for discussion translated perfectly to the Zoom environment required by covid protocols. The mix of adult and high school students was a huge benefit for me – the students’ open attitude to novel ideas and fearless approach to trying new techniques were an inspiration to me. I’ve been wanting to explore AT for many decades and now that I’ve had a taste, I’m hungry to learn more!” – Fall 2020 Student
